I am not saying that they will win any of the games that I checked, but I think they have a real shot at winning those games. Here are my selections:
Minnesota - Personally, I just don't think Favre has it anymore. He also has a pretty bad history in Dome stadiums - he has won a few at Detroit just because of how bad we have been, not because he has played all that great. I think the place will be jumping for the start of the Schwartz/Stafford era (even if Stafford doesn't get the nod). If they get the crowd into it early, I think we have a real shot to pull out a win
Bye - it will be close, but I think I may be right on this one
St Louis - We have a tough opening schedule (pre-bye). If things turn downhill, it could be another long season - if we squeek out a win early, we have a chance to make a little noise and could get on a roll. This will most likely be the first start for Stafford and I think he will respond well.
Seattle - This is dependent on the St Louis game, if we get a win there, this is where I think we can start to roll a winning streak together (2 wins is a winning streak, right?)
The easiest and only real chance going into the season is the St Louis game. Obviously things can change and I have high hopes that The Schwartz and crew can actually gameplan for teams and have the Lions ready. I don't think we have seen everything they can do this pre-season, but I think with what we have seen, they have a much better plan. I'm looking at the same as everyone else 2-4 wins, but would not be suprised if they come closer to 8 or end up with 1.
